Am I cold and heartless for rooting for the Slasher against the teens fleeing him in about 90% of these pictures? (Think it's gotten worse as I've got older lol)
I'll get back up for good this time and I ain't comin' down...

No if anything I think you're supposed to feel that way, up until the "final girl" at least.

So is Hereditary being overhyped?

Probably, but I'm optimistic

Because I've never seen a movie go so far out of its way to tell you THAT ITS THE SCARIEST MOVIE OF A GENERATION in facebook ads like this.

Really? I think I've been seeing that like once or twice a year since The Babadook came out.

We have a Halloween trailer, kind of underwhelming if you ask me.

Just from reading what random people have to say on the internet that aren't journalists or personalities, apparently Hereditary lives up to the hype. I am withholding spoiling myself so I'm not digging too far into it, but man. Sunday can't come soon enough.

Hereditary is not overhyped. It delivers completely. Easily one of the most deeply disturbing and shocking horror films in a long while in my book. It deserves the hype and praise. As much as I enjoyed and respect A Quiet Place and what it was able to do in the box office, Hereditary is the clearly better horror picture if you're looking for something that will actually make you think and keep you up at night.

If you like slow-burn style horror films that grow and grow with dread as they continue, this one should knock it out of the park for you.

Definitely. This looks a bit mundane and not exactly what I expected. The plot elements seem... "off" to me. The reversal of Michael and Laurie being related was something I had already heard about, but I don't agree with it nor the way this movie takes a shot at it. Nor do I like the fact that Michael was simply captured that night and has spent 40 years in an asylum. It's retreading. I kinda thought he had simply "vanished" for 40 years and that would have caused significant amounts of stress on Laurie's psyche.

It just didn't do much for me. I'll try to stay positive but really, I wasn't impressed and my expectations are pretty low now.

***warning I'm about to talk about Hereditary***

Hereditary was brutal and f***ed in ways i did not expect. The ending is extremely bizarre (admittedly one of the hardest things to get right in a horror film), but overall it was really good. After that one really bad and f***ed up thing happened I was in a state of shock and on edge for the rest of the film. Truly horrific.

Yeah it crushed it with the mounting dread, which builds initially, then still manages to build some more after we get a huge gut-punch. The writer/director really loves the creepy figure in the background bit.

I'm definitely a bit shaken by it.
